Our Team

Sarah Klein

Executive Director
Welcome to the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado website. We’re proud to be your trusted partner in the journey of living well with epilepsy, and we strive to offer you the most updated information and resources possible. We understand that living with seizures can present challenges that often are not acknowledged or addressed in day-to-day living, so we’re here to assist you with highly trained, compassionate staff who can answer questions and provide support beyond what your professional medical resources may offer. Our many volunteers, friends and avid supporters want you to know, you are not alone. Here are just a few ways we can help:
  • Project UPLIFT will coach you on how to manage seizures and the emotional turmoil that can often accompany epilepsy
  • Our Facebook page provides both information and inspiration
  • We can provide your school, workplace, or friends with seizure first aid training
  • Your child living with epilepsy can attend our awesome week-long summer camp
  • Or, we’d love to set up a private appointment with one of our program managers to discuss your individual needs.
You are also invited to become a volunteer and help educate, advocate, raise funds, and spread awareness. Run (or walk!) in our 5K in Denver or Colorado Springs, celebrate with us at our annual gala, and help us raise awareness during National Epilepsy Awareness Month (and every month!). We look forward to meeting you! Best regards, Sarah
